Today's Featured Listing

The Old Jail
in St. Augustine

The Old Jail is a historic jail in St. Augustine, Florida. It now serves as the Old Jail Museum. Built by Henry Flagler in 1891 and placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987, the Old Jail served as the St. Johns County Jail until 1953.

Originally built to house up to 72 prisoners, the two story northern wing of the jail consists of a general population and maximum security area, a women’s section and a lower level kitchen. Maximum Security housed the most dangerous prisoners held at the jail, and even includes a Death Row cell for those condemned to die. A total of 8 men were hung from the gallows on the jail compound during its history.

Overall conditions at the jail for those serving various sentences were quite poor by modern standards. Segregation by race was steadfastly adhered to at the jail. Disease, violence and death were commonplace.

With such a dark past, reports of hauntings run rampant within the jail. Strange smells of roses, vomit, human waste, and sweat are some of the more reported unexplainable findings in the jail. Long empty cell doors are heard opening and slamming shut. Footsteps and voices are often heard throughout the building. Several people have reported being pushed by unseen hands. There are even reports of seeing a woman wondering the property in old fashion clothing.

Today, the Old Jail Museum consists of a restored jail with sheriff’s living quarters. It also contains a display of weaponry and a pictorial history of the hangings carried out at the Old Jail, with emphasis on the time the Sheriff CJ Perry was in residence with his family. The Jail is only accessible by guided tour, with costumed guides “processing” in the new prisoners.
